John and Lois Gilroy moved to the Poconos from Manhattan 15 years ago and began their journey of building their formidable landscape design and construction company, Gilroy Northeast, which is located in Tannersville. Both had successful careers in Manhattan. Lois, a coordinating producer who worked on shows like Law and Order with an A-List cast of producers and actors and John, who ran a sccessful company. After 9-11, both reevaluated their situation. The couple agreed it was time to move their young son out of the city for a more laid back lifestyle. “I’m a race car driver, and I had been racing on the area tracks, and we had spent a lot of time in the Poconos already,” explained John. Lois added, “we wanted a simpler lifestyle and then, 9-11 happened and put things into perspective for us. So, The Pocono Mountains has been their permanent home for 15 years now, and the business took off rather quickly.
“I feel like my skills from my production days come into play everyday,” explained Lois, “we understand that our clients are trusting us with their most valuable possession – their home – and we take that responsibility seriously.” At Gilroy Northeast- you get the whole package. They start with the design process and handle everything from permitting to problem solving, explained John. “One client called on us to help him with a wetland issue that had racked up over $250,000 in fines. We were able to fix the problems and replant trees and ultimately not one penny in fines had to be paid. We have an excellent construction team in the office and on site that enables us to have great success with every project.”
For The Gilroy’s, it has been a pleasure to meet and serve their clients throughout the area, “they become friends and some – become family,” explains Lois. Lorraine Falanga is one of those clients, “They were very accessible. John came as often as I needed and made changes as necessary. He wanted to make sure that the design was completely what I wanted before he started! As it turned out— the finished job was better than I imagined. Every phase was easy – from start to finish, and everyone was easy to work with and professional. From the office staff, the punctual and professional crew and John and Lois themselves— my expectations were exceeded.”
Focused on both residential and commercial projects, Gilroy Northeast’s scope of work is comprehensive. The largest waterparks, to the area’s finest residential homes all count on this company to transform their outdoor spaces. Designs are solid and set in place to insure no detail goes unnoticed. Whether you are looking to update your space with a complete overhaul or make some minor changes to fit your lifestyle… Gilroy is for you!
